Known comments by Bruce Cockburn about this song, by date:

  • Album notes: "'Actions Speak Louder' was composed as the theme for the documentary film, 'The Greenpeace Years'." - from the 'Nothing But A Burning Light' album notes.

  • June/July 1992: "'Action' was written as the theme music for a Greenpeace documentary for Canadian TV. It was written apart from the album, but when it was finished, it had a life of its own. So we ended up recording it and we do it in the show." - From: "Bruce Cockburn an Update" by Lahri Bond in the June/July 1992 issue of Dirty Linen (#40). Anonymous submission.
